Shawn Wooden, a former President of the Hartford City Council and a partner at the law firm of Day Pitney LLP, Hartford,, specializing in public pension investment practices, is the Democratic nominee for State Treasurer in the November 6th election.

After he securred the nomination winning the August 14th Primary Wooden said: “Tonight’s victory is for every kid who grew up like I did – in a neighborhood where you first have to focus on survival before you can even dream of success”   

It’s a victory for everyone who has lost a loved one to gun violence and wants our state to stop investing in gun manufacturers. It’s a victory for every family who wants our state to invest wisely – in education, in infrastructure, in an economy that works for Main Street, not Wall Street. It’s a victory for every worker who deserves the promise of a protected pension.  I believe in economic justice, in fairness and in equality.  I am a proud Democrat who knows that Democratic values and priorities reflected up and down the ballot are the best way forward. 

Wooden, the youngest of six children, grew up in Hartford and graduated from Manchester High School as a part of Project Concern, the regional initiative for desegregation in metropolitan Hartford

A graduate of Trinity College where he now serves on the Board of Trustees, Wooden went on to New York University School of Law.  He worked in the AFL-CIO’s Office of Investment in Washington, D.C.  before starting his career at Day Pitney.
